I finally finished this after much trouble. Its still a bit rough and the base needs finalising, but i think it is an improvement on the basic kit :)

Finished as HMS Sirius (F40) in her original early 1970's fit

Nice job. I like this old Airfix kit. The Leander was a really classic British Frigate.

What's happening at the back end? It looks like a cut-price Fearless?

Regards,

She had VDS verable depth sonar it was lowered out of the stern and towed on a cable.

I served on the Sirius 72-74 and she did not have VDS, Her A/S weapon was the mortar mk10 controlled by sonar type 170.A few Leanders did have variable depth sonar, but not Sirius.

Excellent build, you've done a grand job with the PE at that small scale!

Must have missed this build first time round. Excellent use of etched parts to bring out the best in the kit. 8-)
